I'm interested in all forms of drawing and presentation so this book by default is of interest to me and has in it some very good examples of the art of architecural drawing. But, by the same token it dissapointed as it had the feeling of a rushed or compromised "academic" feel about it particularly the newer chapters. A publication for publications sake so it looks good in the cv? Case in point was the last "electronic drawing in color" chapter which has an edge of ordinariness about it considering what is being done in this field and have the commercial look about them. It also seems t centre around known architects and "winners", images that will please a client or just get the job done and overall seems like it's a pitch to the Asian market. Personally I don't like approach. No harm in that if that is yor aim but nothing new to inspire, just a job well done, one of a dozen similar examples I see every day. In contrast the earlier sections are balanced and show a variety of non-commercial techniques, all I suspect built up over a period of time with some integrity to it and possibly from earlier books or studies, who knows. Having said all that I think for someone starting out it has some good examples of rending and drawing to work from.
